Can I Upgrade the GSMVLP?
The GSMVLP can be easily replaced with the GSMVLP4G. The GSMVLP used the AT&T 2G cellular service, which was terminated at the end of 2016. As a result, the GSMVLP will no longer work with a security system. Replacing it with a GSMVLP4G is necessary for using cellular communication with your system.

Why Doesn't My L5210 Do Anything When I Click "Program"?
If clicking on "Program" within the Installer Menu of a Honeywell L5210 does not take you to the next screen, you have been locked out of programming. This is because you selected "No" when asked if you wanted to allow the installer to reenter programming. You must use the backdoor method to get in.

What Is the Difference Between a 2G and 4G Communicator on My Alarm Panel?
When deciding between a 2G and 4G cellular communicator, users should be aware that a 4G communicator will offer substantially faster speeds.
